Is Fightmetric accurate?
Ok, so another fight and another Fightmetric analysis. I want to talk about FM in general.
The thing about fightmeteric is... who can be bothered to scan through a fight frame by frame and confirm their numbers? And yet, we treat them like the gospel. After all, it is simply another human being scanning the fight and taking notes... not some supercomputer than spots everything.
In the past, Ive analysed single rounds ( because doing a whole fight is painful ) frame by frame and found FM's numbers are plain wrong.
Since then, I tend to completely ignore them.
Basically, I wish there were more than one of this type of website, so we can at least get some second opinions... without wasting half a day doing it ourselves. And even if we do it ourselves to prove a point, most people will still believe FM over anybody else's analysis.
